John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Judges 20:15

Were numbered — "How does this agree with the following numbers? For all that were slain of Benjamin were twenty — five thousand and one hundred men, Judges 20:35, and there were only six hundred that survived, Judges 20:47, which make only twenty — five thousand and seven hundred." The other thousand men were either left in some of their cities, where they were slain, Judges 20:48, or were cut off in the two first battles, wherein it is unreasonable to think they had an unbloody victory: and as for these twenty — five thousand and one hundred men, they were all slain in the third battle.
